hi, i tried parnate for social phobia, then went back to nardil, and then switched back to parnate, etc. parnate didn't provide the level of efficacy of nardil, but did have more tolerable side effects. i had hoped 90 mg/day of parnate would have been as effective as Nardil. Didn't find this to be the case, though I did not stay on it at this dose for over a month. So, my doc didn't find 90mg/day to be a problem - FOR ME. However, i am very surprised at your doc's suggestion of self-dosing. i would switch docs, if i were you. find someone experienced in psychopharmacology. best place i've found is university-based anxiety disorders clinic
hope this helps, somewhat.
